Exploring circular solutions in the Danish waste system
Denmark is among the top resource consumers and waste producers in Europe. Despite ambitious green efforts, transitioning to a circular waste system is currently inhibited by lack of information as well as technological, logistical and economical lock-ins. This reinforces the current linear waste system that leads to high volumes of waste and to an unnecessarily high rate of incineration instead of reuse and recycling.
Metabolic has worked with Teknologirådet and DAKOFA to give the Capital Region of Denmark an actionable overview of waste streams and intervention hotspots. This creates the basis for further collaboration among stakeholders to drive a shift to a circular economy - across the value chain.
